  1. Such crystal clear water! I love the sailboat picture. Angelina is so graceful and dainty. To answer your question, Harriet does dance when it comes to food, but it's not pretty!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. The 'against the grain' sail boat has same mood as 'The free' to me too :-) The like the pompon tree. The clusters of flower looks like a collapsible toy ball that children used to play. 'The Consumer' get to tour the island? It will be a tour that has a lot to offer! Happy photographing!

  23. Trixie may have short little legs but she can really run! We have to be careful when opening the front door. She's out the door 0 to 60 mph in seconds ;) Angelina is a little runner too - huh?
